Product description

The primary strength of BEGINNINGS AND BEYOND, 9TH EDITION, is its blend of simplicity and depth. In a clear and easy-to-understand style, the book's five sections lay out basic questions any student of early childhood education would want answered. At the same time, the chapters present key concepts, the latest research, and practical examples so that questions are thoroughly answered. Coverage of the current Developmentally Appropriate Practices (DAP) are woven throughout the text and highlighted by a new boxed feature. Diversity and development are also integrated throughout and highlighted with a new boxed feature, enabling readers to understand that issues of age, gender, race/ethnicity, ability, and family are part of every aspect of teaching and learning. Every chapter has a new interactive feature focused on how brain-based research is connected to development. Intentional teaching is another new strand highlighted by a new Teaching with Intention feature in each chapter. Through its tone, numerous visuals, and carefully crafted pedagogy, the book is accessible to and respectful of readers with a range of abilities and learning styles.
